How To Remove Stubborn Waterproof Eye Makeup Without Tearing Your Skin – Biore Makeup Remover For Eye & Lip Review

Take it all off! Your makeup, I mean! Teeheehee!

It is important to remove all traces of makeup before you turn in for the night. NO EXCUSES! This is my third bottle of the Biore Makeup Remover for Eye & Lip and I can proudly say it will be my HG eye makeup remover until the end of time, unless one day it gets discontinued or is reformulated. =(

I always read about people having trouble removing makeup – waterproof mascara especially – on forums and wonder why, if they’ve always been bugged by that problem, never found the solution that I have? Is because those people in forums didn’t know about the oil-based makeup removers that hail from Japan? Or they didn’t have access to them?

Hmmm, I wonder.


How To: Depot Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in 5 Minutes

The Urban Decay Primer Potion is more than a crush to me. You know, we’re kinda married. Having extremely oily lids and living in a country that is hot and humid all year round, the UDPP has been my savior.

It keeps my eye makeup crease-free, brings out true vibrancy in eyeshadows, and best of all, makes the colors stay on from morning to night.

It is indeed, the best eyeshadow primer and therefore a cult-favorite. Find out how to make the magic last and get more bang for your buck!


MAC Automatic Eyebrow Pencil in Brunette Review

After my brief episode with the Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown that made my black eyebrows appear even more fierce-looking and threw my eye makeup off-balance, I decided that since MAC is like THE standard for so many people, I should find my eyebrow antidote there.

I went to the Raffles City MAC store and was recommended Brunette, Spiked, and Stud by the MUA (makeup artist). I tried them all on my bare brows and thought Brunette looked a teeny wee bit orangey on me but the MUA insisted it suited me best. Against my better judgement, I ended up with Brunette.

So… Do I love it?
